Safesite has completed the installation of its Cabloc vertical fall arrest system at Kemsley Mill to provide safe access to the Mill?s CCTV and lighting systems for maintenance purposes. Kemsley Mill is one of Europe?s most technologically advanced paper mills. CCTV and flood lighting are strategically placed around the mill to provide a safe working environment. This system dealt with a further health and safety issue: how to ensure the maintenance of the equipment was carried out safely and efficiently. The installation of Safesite?s Cabloc allows workers to access the towers housing the CCTV and lighting systems as and when required in total safety. Cabloc has been developed as an alternative fall arrest system for areas such as towers or lighting masts where a track system would impede the use of the original structure. The system is based on a vertical tensioned cable and arrester device, providing maximum strength, flexibility and durability of the installation. Cabloc?s cable is clamped to the top of the tower with an impact shock absorber and then at regular intervals along the length of the system. Should an operative fall then the shock absorber will absorb the energy released by the fall, preventing serious injury.
